The longtime Rangers employee serves as the club’s public address announcer and oversees scoreboard and video production for all Rangers home games. In addition, Morgan also is responsible for the Rangers promotional schedule each year.

He has announced the starting lineups for 2,898 consecutive Major League Baseball games and has not missed a home game in Texas or Kansas City since he started in Major League Baseball 37 years ago.

With the Rangers, Morgan has been responsible for the creation of the Texas Rangers Baseball Hall of Fame, the Texas Rangers Fan Fest, and the Rangers’ mascot. He is credited with the creation of the “Dot Race” and the Texas Legends Dash at Rangers home games. He was coordinator for All-Star Workout Day and Home Run Derby for Major League Baseball’s 1995 All-Star Game.

In addition to his tenure with the Rangers, Morgan also worked for the Kansas City Royals (2002) and Nashville Sounds (1978-1980). For six years, he was the public address announcer on Major League Baseball video games for Microsoft’s X-Box, Sony PlayStation 2 and Nintendo’s GameCube.

While in Nashville, he was an announcer at The Grand Ole Opry, hosted several nationally syndicated radio and television shows, and made several “cornfield” appearances on Hee Haw.

In 1982, he was named the Country Music Association’s Major Market Disc Jockey of the Year. In 2001 and 2003, he was named by The Sporting News as the best public address announcer in Major League Baseball. And this past year, Morgan was inducted into the Information Display and Entertainment Association (IDEA) Hall of Fame. The IDEA Hall of Fame honors innovators in event presentation.

Chuck and his wife, Starr, reside in Fort Worth. He has two sons: Kelley and Rhett.
